Email Alerts

Hi everyone, 
 
Just a simple question about email alerts on fortigate. To my understanding, the necessary settings are the following:
 
config system email-server
set port 25
set server smtp.example.com
set authenticate enable
set username FortiGate
set password *************
end
config alertemail setting
set username fortigate@example.com
set mailto1 admin1@example.com
set mailto2 admin2@example.com
set filter category
set IPS-logs enable
end
 
My only question is this: where does one get the fortigate's email address from (fortigate@example.com)? Does every appliance come with its own email address, is it a case of putting the UTM's FQDN or what?
 
Thanks.

It's not email address FGT has, but it's email address the SMTP server you use can accept as a source. If it's hosting "example.com" domain, it would accept email from "example.com" in the example on the manual.

Thanks, I don't think it would make sense otherwise.

Further on the above Toshi, would you also happen to know how that can be configured with smtp.office365.com?
